I'm a bit of a useless list man

What to do in 2010?

I'm a bit of a useless list man
Not that what I list is useless, it's just once I have created one, I forget to check it... ever.
Neglecting it as a decorated scrap of paper, but not even a cool scrap of paper with a funky doodle. In fact, in the playground of lists they'll be the ones in ill fitting uniforms wearing odd socks and separating it's M&M's into separate colours before consumption. Neither trendy enough for the cool kids or chic enough for the geeks - I truly feel awful for my lists, I'm such a bad list parent.

So top of pile has to be:

Appreciate and acknowledge the list
Dear list, thank you for being my Pensieve (one for you Harry Potter geeks)

Save money
Quite hard for me to do as I'm 1/10 Magpie and gadgets are so dam shiny!

Go on a biking holiday
Of the engine variety of course - long gone are the days of extreme fitness, though if the waistline continues to be explorative I may have to cut down on the pies :(

Move in with my lady
Never actually done this before so quite a big deal for us both, she is very brave. This will then lead to the following...

Build a walk in wardrobe
One of the requirements of living together, she has soooooo many shoes. Besides once this is done I can...

Build a man cave
A room for my cameras, comics, computer games, giant beanbag, antique stereo etc - Stupidly excited about this

Avoid getting my hair cut
It's been about 14 months since the last serious snip and I'm curious as to how long it will take before I start looking like a young Gandalf... because that would be awesome!

See my niece more
She's my only one, she's adorable and she deserves to know how cool her uncle is - fact. Not that she'll remember but I was the first person to take her on a (mild) roller coaster. She may have been 1, but we totally rocked

Extend tattoo
I have a D&D/Batman themed shoulder tattoo that I want to extent into a full sleeve - Drawings are being done now and I'll post the results

Take lady to Disneyland
Because thats where the magic happens ;)

Blog more
I started blogging because I have trouble writing. So this is an effort to confront my linguistical demons, which has turned out to be supportive and fun - thanks guys!

Create more personal work
As a photographer I have not taken many pictures of late. I have a head full of ideas though, so it's about time I unleashed them and shared my creative juices

Well as lists go thats pretty extensive for me, as the year moves on I'll endeavor to revisit my ambitions and document the progressions... or not - after all, I'm a bit of a useless list man.

Sorry, made a mistake on that comment. What I had said was:

I like this list a lot. I can't wait to read of the outcomes!

Also, I have a list as well. One that involves winter camping and skydiving. O.M.G.

Wow, that's a big list. Good luck keeping the mancave to yourself, it sounds way too cool to make it a fortress of solitude. Superman only made his work by it being so bloody cold for everyone else, and the missus STILL turned up at inconvenient moments...

I'm awful with lists. I keep away from them because they stress me out. My sister loves them. She has a "list notebook." Scares the hell out of me, but she loves it. Lists are good for some, bad for others (me). I thoroughly enjoyed reading yours. Looking forward to your updates =)
Happy New Year!

Thank you for your comments!

Kato - Winter camping? Has anyone ever said you're loco?

Indigo/idifficult - I hear you, but I get the feeling no matter what I do, she'll always find a way lol

Lesinfin - I'm glad I'm not alone :)

Ani Pants - Here's to a great year! <3

Eolist - Thank you, here's wishing you a good year also :)

The man cave sounds like the most fun thing on the list! (No shoes allowed!) My entire house is my woman cave.
